It can be in different areas but it sure as hell looks lovely and can come off as an alluring surprise factor when making love with someone new. Both men and women pierce their genitals in order to look pretty and make a statement.

2. Piercing the Nipple
As astonishing as it might sound, nipple piercing isn’t as uncommon as one might perceive it to be. In fact, a lot of people have really cool and elaborate piercings on their nipples. This is obviously a practice that is common amongst tribal people. However, the modern, urban youth has also taken to it and has adopted the practice beautifully. After all, a pierced nipple does look quite appealing! The barbell is the most common choice for women whilst the bead ring appears to be the most common choice for men.

3. An Elaborate Belly Button Piercing
Those belly button rings are surely one of the sexiest! From small belly button rings to tinkling bells, people have had all kinds of piercings on their navel. From huge hoops to beads and pearls, the navels have seen it all. Sometimes one wears small rings or studs in there which look as pretty as anything else.
While small rings or studs are common, a lot of people go the extra mile. An elaborate artwork is created around the navel through piercing. One of the best things about a navel piercing is that it doesn’t take a very long time to heal. Hence, it is easier to create as many details as you like here, over anywhere else.
All you have to do is maintain cleanliness and it’ll be ok in some time. Often, your body isn’t accepting of the piercing you decide on but if it is in the navel area, you have little to worry about.

However, there is more to body piercing than just the belly button.
